Interventional Urology

Interventional UrologyInterventional uroradiology covers a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures aimed at treating problems that affect the kidney, bladder and ureter (the tube connecting the kidney to the bladder), and testes. Some of the more common procedures are detailed below.

Procedures

Varicocele Embolisation:

A varicocele is a varicose vein in the scrotum that can cause symptoms in some men. Most patients will be seen by a Urologist to assess if the vein is the cause of the patients symptoms, and to rule out any other problem. An ultrasound will usually be performed to help with this. If the varicocele is the cause of the problem it can be easily treated by an Interventional Radiologist, using a small catheter inserted through a nick in the skin to close down the vein from the inside. A patient guide is available with more information.

Some of the procedures are also discussed in interventional uroradiology

Kidney Tumour Ablation:

Some kidney tumours are suitable for treatment with special probes that kill the tumour in the kidney without requiring surgery. Using advanced image-guided technology special probes are placed into the tumour through a tiny nick in the skin. The probes then heat or freeze the tumour to kill all the cancer without requiring surgery. Patients can go home the same day or the following day and return to normal activities within a few days.
This is also discussed under Interventional Oncology.
